JEE Main and JEE Advanced 2013 is the beginning of the new system of selecting of candidates for IITs and NITs. JEE Main 2013 replaced AIEEE and JEE Advanced replaced the older IIT JEE Exam. The new JEE Advanced 2013 Exam was a two session (Paper 1 and Paper 2) examination conducted pen and paper based in India on 2nd June 2013. The top 1.5 Lakhs candidates of JEE Main 2013 were allowed to appear the most prestigious entry level test for seeking admissions to IITs and ISM, Dhanbad. Around 14 Lakhs candidates appeared for JEE Main 2013 which was conducted in both online and offline mode.
The pattern for JEE Main 2013 was like previous AIEEE exam. There were 90 questions of 4 marks each and for each incorrect answer there is a 25% negative marking. The candidates were to finish their answer in 3 hours of time limit. Whereas, JEE Advanced paper 1 had 60 questions in total with a time limit of 3 hours and Paper 2 also had 60 questions in total with a time limit of 3 hours. All the questions of JEE Advanced were MCQs with either one or more correct choices except 5 questions each in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics of paper 1 which are integer type questions. The new proposed format has subjective tests which will bring more trouble to students within the allowed time limit.
IIT Bombay has proposed a change in the exam pattern in JEE Advanced from the year 2014. The proposed new pattern has to eliminate MCQs from the JEE Advanced test making it more tougher for candidates to write their response to each question after solving the solution on their own without any multiple choice. The new rule, however will take effect after consultation with other IITs and final nod by the Joint Examination Committee who will decide the new patter for IIT JEE.
